I would like to use google apps for my domain e-mail.

However, I want to be able to process emails and store attachments like in a ticketing system sent to:


How can I setup the MX records for this? Are there services that already do this that I can leverage?

My options are either to poll it from an inbox with pop3/imap or to process it in real time by running my own mailserver (the latter is not preferable due to the difficulty/responsibility involved).
